Another year is at its end, and as we get ready to leap into the new year, we thought it might be fun to take another look at some of our favorite tutorials from 2015. After all, you might have missed something fun!
January: Patchwork by Fusible Grid Tutorial
February: Crazy Quilt Heart Pincushion Tutorial
Jazz up your mood for Valentine’s Day with this great crazy-quilted heart pincushion that doubles as a scissor holder! It’s also a fun way to use the decorative stitches on your sewing machine.
March: The Afternoon Skirt Tutorial
We love the Afternoon Skirt! This little striped skirt is a fun way to show off a handful of coordinating prints, and it’s easy enough that you can make one in an afternoon.
April: Hexagons by Machine Tutorial
Did you know you can piece hexagons on your sewing machine? We show you how on our Grandmother’s Flower Garden by Machine Tutorial.
You can use a pieced top, extra trim or embellishments, or minky on the inside to customize a car seat canopy. Use your imagination and go to town with it!
Here’s another alternative to sewing hexagons together by hand. This method relies heavily on fabric glue, so it’s best for things that won’t be washed often.
Make this boutique-inspired understated beauty with our Mod Triangle Baby Quilt tutorial. Use mostly solids in any color palette for a quick stunner.
August: Box Pouch Tutorial
Who doesn’t love a good boxy pouch? Our version features beautiful bias-trimmed seams in the inside.
September: Candy Corn Pillow Tutorial
Fall in love with candy all over again with our Candy Corn Pillow. This is a companion pillow to our Bewitching Beasties.
October: Halloween Crossroads Quilt Tutorial
One of our favorites of the year, the Halloween Crossroads Quilt would be beautiful in any fabric and for any season. And, we actually did finish it this year!
November: Perfect PJ Pants
We’ve only had the Perfect PJ Pants pattern up for a month, and it already has more downloads than any of our other free patterns! Craftsy featured it on their blog in the 9 Cute, Cozy + Free Children’s Pajama Patterns.
